Since we're hosting Thanksgiving this year, I've been scouring the interwebs for delicious, wholesome, and unique grain-free dishes. I thought I would share my ideal menu with you. I probably won't actually make every single one of these, but it's fun to dream big. What's going to be on your Thanksgiving table? Feel free to leave links to your favorite recipes in the comments. Happy menu planning!
